Sometimes You Just Don't Need That BIG Budget

Ah the parody. That much misunderstood genre of advert, that can bring us absolute classics, and incredible rubbish.

Happily the new Pot Noodle ad is brilliant. A parody of the Guinness Domino ad (Tipping Point), with the right style and atmosphere.

A good point raised on the You Tube comments is just how small the budget for this must have been compared to the original; but this one is so much better. I love the Guinness and Honda reference for the tyres, and also the blatant cutting.

It feels like so much more thought went into this one.
